Bury a wire. Not being a smartass but we've tried cheapos, name brand, expensive, etc. and they all eventually suck.

I think they all have a rechargeable AA battery or two or three.
Which will only take a finite amount of recharging.
I have installed fresh AA's and then get the same life out of them again.

I have both and the low voltage are better. Especially with leds. I used the pressure washer method to bury the wires. Quick and easy.
